    Anyone ever think about printing business cards that say "Thanks ICEhole" or a more police message? I thought about getting 500 business cards printed up to keep in the glovebox. :D We were at the Florence South Carolina SC the other day and out of 18 spots, 6 were taken by ICE cars simply because they were close to the food court. Plenty of parking spots all over the mall, just a few self-entitled folks.

    Already been done. There were some threads a few years ago with suggested text (more politically correct). Don't forget to include the pic you put on qrz. That'll scare them :)

    I don't using offensive back is helping us at all. If anything, this is an opportunity to educate people that EV charging station is just like the gas station to them. Pissing them off in return is not a fix.

    I'd forgotten about that picture. Been 15 years since I took that one. Who says a 44mag is the most powerful handgun? I think it's a savage 243 with a bipod and a thing on the stock to tell time. :)

    Keep in mind that sometimes SC spots will allow 30 minutes general parking. Be certain the spot is Tesla-only before you leave a note.

    History has proven time and again that you can’t insult someone into agreeing with you.

    ICEing happens because a) people don’t know any better, b) people don’t care, or c) they’re actively being a-holes.

    Education helps with the first, reason can sometimes help with the second, and little you can do in the moment helps with the last.

    Aggreed. It is not worth getting upset about unless your Tesla can't make it to your final destination.
